In Orbit takes the audience on an intergalactic journey from countdown to landing. Beginning with Strauss' Also spruce Zarathustra featured in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, the show is introduced with a grand statement as rockets begin ignition. Winds of Poseidon flies through space the journey now underway, with melodies and features handed off section-to-section like planets and stars sailing past the shuttle windows.
Aaron Perrine's Tears of St. Lawrence, named after the astronomy phenomenon where shooting stars shower the Earth from the comet Swift-Tuttle, shimmers as the voyage slows down and the expanse of the universe comes into focus.
Elton John's Rocketman serves as a closing coda for the space odyssey, returning to Earth and touching down with a final impactful statement.
